Exquisite Trims in Thread Crochet by Caitlin Sainio, softback published by Search Press. ISBN 978-1-84448-990-9, price 10.99 available from www.searchpress.com
We all love to crochet, judging by the number of recent publications. Here is a book that provides you with beautiful crochet trims and edges to adorn clothing and homeware. The book starts with a colourful trim selector. You will find all about the basics, materials, tools and a crochet refresher course included. The main body of the book is taken up with 75 trims. These are divided as follows: single coloured lace; multi-coloured lace; floral trims; autumn harvest; winter holiday; creatures and children. The biggest sections is the laces both single and multi-colour and this is the best section in my opinion. Finally trims are shown in use on a number of inspiring ideas. This is a beautiful book and I can easily envisage myself using about 50 of the trims in my own designs. The trim is shown in colour and both written and graph instructions are given. Photography is very good. Caitlin’s other books are also to be highly recommended.
